Very tasty but the filling is runny. any tips to make it compact?

I have made this twice and both times the consistency of the lemon filling is very runny, sort of like pudding. I follow the instructions and do not deviate from them. Any idea as to what I am doing wrong? By the way I bake the sweet potatoes.
